Ms. Alvaro made a motion to approve the minutes of the May 7, 2012, meeting. Motion seconded by Mr. Marrocco and unanimously approved.


Mr. Estep gave a summary of the recreation programs at this time. There will be a total of 24 camps being run through the summer months through the Recreation Department including swim camps and sewing camps. It was related that the concession menu is offering a healthier menu for the kids this summer.


Discussion turned to the previously mentioned 5k run. It was noted that approximately 25 volunteers would be needed. The run should be either on a Saturday or Sunday, preferably between one of the sports seasons. A suggestion was made that November may be a good time to schedule a 5K run in between soccer and basketball seasons. It was also noted that sponsors are needed to offset expenses, such as the timing system and refreshments. Mr. Whittaker suggested that the Committee members solicit sponsors for the run.


It was noted that travel baseball is struggling but that the numbers are good for travel soccer.


The meeting adjourned at 7:30 p.m.
